HTC will take the wraps off its U12+ flagship on May 23. While the official teaser poster already shows us the internals of the device, a new leak has revealed what the phone looks like when assembled.
The new leak is a photo of the official renders of the HTC U12+ and was shared on Twitter by Evan Blass. It shows the HTC u12+ in three color variants including a translucent version.
The photo confirms the HTC U12+ has dual cameras on both sides. The ones in front are positioned on the left side of the top bezel while the rear cameras sit in the middle of the device. Below the rear sensors is a LED flash and fingerprint scanner.
The bezels are moderately-sized and the phone uses on-screen buttons. The date on the homescreen even confirms the May 23 launch date.
Alongside the photo of the phone, Evan Blass has also leaked the full specifications of the phone.
The HTC U12+ will continue with HTC’s Liquid Surface design. Just like the HTC U11+, it will also have pressure-sensitive buttons and a new haptic feedback experience. There are a number of new features the pressure sensitive buttons have. HCT has tagged it Edge Sense 2.0 and below are a few of them:
- Holding down the buttons enables smart rotate and smart dim.
- A double tap (double squeeze) will launch a mini-screen for one-handed use. You can also set it to act as a return key.
The U12+ will have a 6” QHD+ screen. It is Super LCD 6, has HDR10 support, and is covered with Gorilla Glass. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage.
The front cameras are dual 8MP f/2.0 1.12um sensors with an 84° wide-angle field of view. There is portrait mode, AR stickers, face unlock, live beauty mode, and a selfie panorama mode.
The rear cameras are a combination of a 12MP wide-angle sensor with HTC UltraPixel 4 (1.4um pixel size and a f/1.75 aperture) and a 16MP telephoto sensor with a 1.0um pixel size and f/2.6 aperture.
There is OIS, AR stickers, laser focus + PDAF, up to 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom, bokeh mode, 4K video at 60fps, slow motion at 240fps, and more.
The HTC U12+ will come with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa depending on the region. It will support always-on voice commands, have NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB-C port, and even support for DisplayPort over USB-C.
The battery in the U12+ is 3,500mAh with QC 3.0 fast charging. It will be available in single SIM and dual-SIM variants. The phone is said to be priced over $700.
